In some Buddhist countries, children make or buy interestingly shaped lanterns and hang them from trees and lamp-posts to celebrate this colourful holiday. You can see this happening in our Vesak colouring page.

Use our sensory planning sheet to encourage the children to brainstorm ideas about Vesak, so they can write an exciting sensory poem for the celebration.
This pretty "stained glass" lotus flower is also a simple lesson in symmetry! It looks very pretty hung in a window for the light to shine through it, and would be perfect for Vesak celebrations.
